Postscript: Bloomsbury’s Gardens Reclaimed

The publication of the article yesterday exploring the possible benefits of restricted access to Bloomsbury’s gardens and streets led to some fierce debate in the realm of Twitter. The arguments and opinions espoused were delivered with such great force and were crafted in such a sophisticated manner that I have felt compelled to respond to these in the name of open and civilised debate.

As you may have seen, the only defence the Council has left is that people don’t know of their failings. As that wall begins to fall, they will be forced to restore some cleanliness to our streets, as indeed, has already begun to happen. This will make our neighbourhoods safer, and business more profitable. Use the buttons below to share this website, or copy and … Continue reading Spread the word.
